Police Investigate Suspected Luring Incident

A juvenile girl was approached by a suspicious vehicle as she walked to school Friday morning.

Gloucester Township Police are searching for a person who allegedly attempted to pick up a juvenile girl as she walked to school Friday morning.

The student was approached as she walked to school at 7:40 a.m. on Mullen Drive of the Coblestone Development off Sicklerville Road. She was approached by a red or maroon four-door vehicle with tinted windows.

The driver partially opened the window and allegedly asked the student if she wanted a ride. The student immediately ran to the middle school. The vehicle was last seen driving into the development.

The student couldn't offer a description of the person because their windows were tinted and the window was only partially opened.
